  • Collaborate closely with the FAO Country office, FAO technical officers in the regional office and HQ as well as with government counterparts.
  • Collect data and information on policy (including regulation, subsidies and other policy instruments), laws and legislation as well as strategies/ action plans pertaining to solar irrigation. This requires the consultant to be proactive and inquisitive.
  • Provide list of private sector actors, NGOs, government institutions and other that are doing practical work with solar irrigation systems in the country.
  • Identify case studies (areas/ farms where solar-powered irrigation systems have been installed), establish contacts and collect data on the type of system, its performance and other key information on how it has been financed, who owns and operates it, what challenges there are, what its impacts have been on agricultural productivity and groundwater resources, etc.
  • Analyse the collected data to draw conclusions about the risks and potential for upscaling solar irrigation at the national/ regional level and make recommendations on how to do so sustainably.

Based on the above, prepare country assessment report on solar irrigation(40 – 60 pp + annexes) with data and analysis on the following:
a) Current uses of SPIS in country;
b) Existing and potential risks with SPIS completing former assessments such as the GIZ “Multi-country and Stocktaking Report”;
c) Key factors determining the success and failure of SPIS on the ground (biophysical, technical, agronomic, managerial, organisational and financial aspects, gender aspects);
d) Relevant legal, policy and financial instruments by government, financial institutions and private sector to promote and regulate SPIS, including those leading to an enhanced gender-sensitive use of SPIS. The reports should also look at how farm-level application of SPIS is linked to national policy frameworks and support structures.
e) Recommendations towards technical, financial, regulatory and policy mechanisms to ensure the long-term sustainability of SPIS technology.
